Grossular
stock #17.AL-497
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 2 x .9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $840
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear, sharp and with top glass-like luster this has a lot of impact for its size. From the long flooded deep areas of the main pit at Jeffrey, this is the sort of Garnet that made this spot world famous. Flat contact on back (typical of these plates) and very 3 dimensional of the display side, excellent condition. These have become very hard or very expensive to get in this quality.
Cuprite var. Chalcotrichite with Malachite
stock #12.1-208
Changmenshan Copper Mine, Jiulang
Jiangxi, China
7.2 x 5.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $575
pre Tucson 2015 update

Electric red crystals of Chalcotrichite in characteristic hair-like form are densely clustered in and near a protective vug. Great display quality for such a delicate mineral. This was found over 7 years ago, we have not seen new material from this locale since. Crystals reach well over 1 CM and are gem clear under magnification. This can be shipped (with insurance and special packaging) or delivered in person at a show or elsewhere. Please write us for details.
Cornetite with Malachite, Chrysocolla
stock #15.1-091
Katanga, Central Area, Katanga Copper zone
Shaba, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
7 X 6.4 X 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $110
Tucson group

Bright blue sparkling Cornetite in two different hues is covering a matrix of Malachite and translucent Chrysocolla. From finds in 2000, the druzy Cornetite layer is covering much of the surface on this specimnen. A very nice, colorful example for the specie.
Beryl V. Goshenite on Muscovite with Albite
stock #7.AE-462
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.2 x 5.3 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

Unusually gem clear, free standing Beryl crystal from this world class locale. The main crystal is sharp and undamaged, a few wispy veils are seen inside from some angles. A very faint hint of blue is noted but this is essentially colorless Beryl (Goshenite) which is surprisingly rare. Sawn on the underside as is usual for collecting these, it sits well on the flat base.
Actinolite pseudo after Diopside (Uralite)
stock #8.AE-736
Calumet Mine, Turret District, Chaffee County
Colorado, United States
8.8 x 5.2 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $240
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very well documented and fine Colorado classic piece, this comes with 5 old labels, one of which notes: Collected in 1946 by C.G. Coil. Clarence Coil was a significant figure in Colorado Mineralogy. Well formed, terminated crystals are on several sides and in one large vug. This was in many collections over the years, including Elberto Tealdi (Milan, Italy) and Richard Kosnar. The esthetics and satiny luster in person show why it was included in these fine collections.
Quartz (capped)
stock #14.1-054
Virtuous Lady Mine - Buckland Monachorum
Tavistock District, Devon, England
6.4 x 4.3 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very famous type of Quartz from a very famous location that is also well formed and attractive. The "capped" quartz is a single specimen that separates into two pieces revealing an inner quartz crystal core that formed earlier, much like nesting Russian dolls. Some small nicks are noted on this piece as is typical, but it is far better condition than most. The fit of the crystals is snug and precise, this classic habit is well illustrated in this piece!
Azurite- electric blue with Cerussite
stock #ALEC-27-085
Touissit, Toussit District
Oujada-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
3.5 x 1.7 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

A bright sharp, gemmy electric blue Azurite from the long gone but fondly remembered finds at Touissit. This is mostly all Azurite, but there are some small Cerussites sticking out in a few spots. The Cerussites do have damage but the Azurite (which is the main focus) is in great shape with sharp prismatic terminations. Far better in person, a fine yet affordable piece.
Vesuvianite -Purple phantom
stock #17.AL-500
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.5 x 3.5 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An especially bright and lustrous specimen of gemmy Vesuvianite with rare phantoms of deep purple enclosed by a lighter green exterior. In very good (but not absolutely perfect condition), what looks like damage in the photos is actually reflections inside these glass- clear crystals. There is some outside edge damage and contacts/ chipping that can be best seen with magnification, so not for ultra perfectionists, but this habit with bright color phantom is very rare. This is an excellent example.
